I. HISTORY PURPOSE AND PROGRAMS 



HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, as 
Armstrong Junior College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Savannah to meet a pressing need for a college in the community. 
The college was housed in the Armstrong Building, a gift to the city 
from the family of George F. Armstrong, and over the years built or 
acquired five additional buildings in the Forsythe Park and Monterey 
Square areas. The college, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became 
a two-year unit in the University System of Georgia on January 1, 
1959, under the control of the Regents of the University System. In 
1962, the Mills B. Lane Foundation purchased a new campus site of 
over 200 acres located on Abercorn Extension. The new campus, 
with eight new buildings, was occupied in December, 1965. 

In 1964, the Regents conferred upon Armstrong the status of a 
four-year college, with the right to offer the degrees of Bachelor of 
Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Business Administration. 
President Henry L. Ashmore, who succeeded President Foreman M. 
Hawes on July 1, 1964, was charged with the responsibility of 
developing the institution from junior to senior status. A junior year 
was added to the college curriculum in 1966-67, with the senior year 
added in 1967-68 and the first four-year degrees awarded at the 
spring, 1968 commencement. The college now offers more than 
twenty major programs leading to baccalaureate degrees, and, in 
addition, the two-year associate degree in nursing, dental hygiene and 
in criminal justice. Effective in the 1971-72 academic year, the Board 
of Regents of the University System of Georgia authorized 
Armstrong State College and Savannah State College to offer joint 
programs leading to the M.B.A. and M.S. in Elementary Education 
degrees. Additional programs in Teacher Education at the secondary 
level were initiated Summer Quarter, 1972. 



The academic community includes approximately 3700 students 
and 140 full-time faculty members. Armstrong State College was 
fully accredited as a senior institution by the Southern Association 
of Colleges and Schools in December, 1968, with accreditation 
retroactive to January 1, 1968, and was re-accredited in December, 
1972. The Joint Graduate Studies Program was fully accredited by 
the Southern Association in December, 1973.

PURPOSE 

Armstrong State College is a multi-purpose institution offering 
degree programs in the liberal arts, sciences, and a number of 
specialized fields. As a service to the community, it also provides a 
continuing education program for those who have non-degree 
objectives. The College strives to maintain the flexibility and 
adaptability which activated its growth and change of status in less 
than thirty-five years from a small city-supported junior college to a 
senior college in the University System of Georgia. Therefore, the 
College defines its present purpose in the following terms: 

to provide modern facilities and a professional staff in an environ- 
ment that promotes the free exchange of ideas; 

to bring each student to a better realization of his own intellectual, 
emotional, and spiritual potential by providing academic programs in 
the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences; 

to develop the student's technical and analytical skills through 
programs leading to professional degrees in a number of areas, 
including Allied Health, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, 
and Teacher Education; 

to offer opportunities for continuing education through symposia, 
conferences, institutes, and courses unrelated to degree programs; 

to make available the full resources of the College through 
involvement in research projects, public service activities, and other 
programs sponsored by the community. 

PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS 

Armstrong State College offers the first two years of programs in 
engineering, forestry, industrial management, physics; the entire pre- 
professional programs in dentistry, law, pharmacy, veterinary med- 
icine, medicine, optometry, and other fields. Among specialized 
pre-professional programs are the following: 

Armstrong State College-Georgia Institute of Technology 
Dual-Degree Program 

Upon completion of the first three years of academic work at 
Armstrong, the student may enroll for two subsequent years at 
Georgia Institute of Technology. After completing the requirements 
of the two cooperating institutions, the student will be awarded a 
baccalaureate degree from Armstrong State College and a bacca- 
laureate degree in one of a number of academic areas from Georgia 

32 



Institute of Technology. For further information on this dual-degree 
program, the student should contact the Office of the Dean of the 
College.

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Beginning with the Fall Quarter of 1971, Armstrong State College 
joined with Savannah State College to offer a joint program of 
graduate work. Faculty and other resources of both institutions are 
drawn upon equally to operate the program, and degrees are awarded 
jointly by the two schools. The Joint Graduate Studies Program 
offers instruction leading to the Master of Business Administration 
degree and the Master of Education degree in Early Childhood 
Education, Elementary Education, and Special Education (Behavior 
Disorders) as well as in the secondary teaching fields of Biology, 
Chemistry, English, Mathematics, History, and Political Science. The 
master's programs are designed to provide opportunities for further 
professional growth, for expanding professional and cultural back- 
grounds, and for extending knowledge and understanding in an area 
of specialty. 

For complete information about these programs, contact the 
Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at either Armstrong State 
College or Savannah State College, requesting a copy of the Graduate 
Bulletin. 



INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS 

Students at Armstrong State College may participate in two 
state- wide internship programs: the Georgia Intern Program and the 
State Legislative Intern Program. These programs provide the student 
with opportunities to observe first-hand and to participate in agency 
and legislative processes as he works under the direction of and is 
responsible to an agency or legislative supervisor. In addition to 
state-wide internship programs, students may participate in local 
internship experiences. They may receive academic credit for these 
experiences. They must be enrolled full-time at the College and must 
be in good academic standing. For further details concerning the 
requirements for internship programs at the College, please consult 
the Head of the Department of History and Political Science. 

EVENING CLASSES 

In addition to the full daytime schedule, Armstrong offers a 
schedule of classes in the evening, including most of the required 
courses for some degree programs. Students employed during the day 
must limit their enrollment to one or two courses each quarter.

OFFICE OF COLLEGE AND COMMUNITY SERVICES 

Short Courses, Workshops and Seminars are planned, organized 
and administered by the office in response to group interest, or to 
meet a community need brought to the attention of the Dean for 
College and Community Services. All are offered on a non-credit 
basis and, except in a very few cases, there are no special 
requirements or prerequisites for admission. A brochure of courses, 
under the heading of "Short Courses," is mailed before the beginning 
of every quarter; anyone wishing to do so may have his name placed 
on this mailing list. Subjects covered vary widely; the series is 
designed to offer something to appeal to almost any adult taste, from 
Computer Programming to Interior Decoration. The Dean is always 
glad to arrange courses for candidates preparing to take professional 
examinations in engineering, insurance, real estate, and in other 
areas; the college has been approved as an Examination Center for a 
number of these examinations. One-day workshops are also planned 
and managed by this office. 

NEIGHBORHOOD CONTINUING EDUCATION CENTER 

The Neighborhood Continuing Education Center is a cooperative 
endeavor of Armstrong State College, Savannah State College, 
Georgia Southern College, and the University of Georgia. The Center 
provides a continuing education program for low income residents in 
a Savannah Model Cities area neighborhood. The major objective is 
to utilize the combined resources of the cooperating institutions to 
provide educational experiences suited to the needs of the citizens 
within this area. 

OFFICE OF DEVELOPMENT 

The purpose of the Office of Development is to promote funding 
for College programs from sources supplemental to state appro- 
priations and student fees. To accomplish this purpose, the College 
participates in federal and other grant supported activities and seeks 
assistance from alumni and friends. From private sources, the College 
accepts memorial and other gifts for the athletic program, instruc- 
tional equipment, library books, matching funds for grants, scholar- 
ships, and other restricted purposes. Unrestricted contributions are 
accepted to be used at the discretion of the President to meet special 
and unforeseen needs. Gifts of any size can be used to add to the 
library collection in the name of an individual or an agency, although 
all gifts are acknowledged and published, where appropriate and 
when requested, by the donor's name. Gifts for scholarships are 
generally received by the College in one of two ways: the donor 
specifies support or choice of specific students, with the College 
serving only as a distribution agent; or the donor specifies support of 

35 



student scholarships generally or scholarships within a broad aca- 
demic field, with the College identifying the gift by name, if 
appropriate, and distributing the funds according to standard policies 
and procedures. Gifts of this latter type are tax deductible. The 
Director of Development is pleased to provide further information to 
any prospective donor. 

OFFICE OF COMPUTER SERVICES 
This office coordinates the campus-wide system of computer 
services. The Director also provides technical assistance to the faculty 
and staff of the college in the development of computer programs 
and systems. Through participation in the University System 
Computer Network, information processing devices located on 
campus are connected via a direct telephone line to the large 
computers located at Georgia State University and the University of 
Georgia. 

ACADEMIC SKILLS LABORATORY 

The purpose of the Academic Skills Laboratory is to provide aid 
for those students experiencing difficulty in the areas of reading, 
mathematics, or English. An individualized program is planned and 
conducted after identification of the student's needs through 
diagnostic procedures. 

A student may be referred to the Laboratory by a faculty member 
or may refer himself. The student may enroll for five to fifteen 
institutional credit hours per quarter. The student's program may be 
completed in less than a full quarter, or may be continued over two 
or more quarters. 

STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM 
WITH SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE 

A student enrolled at Savannah State College or at Armstrong 
State College as a full-time student has the privilege of taking one 
course with his Dean's approval at the other college without paying 
an additional fee. A student may take two courses in his home 
college paying full fees and one course at the other college, which 
will be transferred back to his home college, or a student with at 
least a "B" average in the preceding quarter may take three courses 
at his home college, paying full fees, and register at the other college 
for an additional course without additional cost. No restrictions are 
placed on the number of courses taken at the other college if the 
student is enrolled in the Joint Graduate Studies Program or in the 
undergraduate cooperative programs in Music Education, Physical 
Education, or the undergraduate joint program in Social Work. In the 

36 



undergraduate programs, however, the student must enroll in major 
area courses only to receive unrestricted enrollment privileges. 

The colleges operate a shuttle-bus service between the two 
campuses to facilitate movement of students who are taking courses 
on both campuses. 

A student may obtain in the Office of the Dean of the College the 
proper form for permission to register for courses at Savannah State 
College. 

NROTC PROGRAM 

Students at Armstrong State College may enroll in the Naval 
Reserve Officers Training program offered on the Savannah State 
College campus. For further information, consult the Registrar at 
Armstrong State College; the Commanding Officer, NROTC Unit, 
Savannah State College; or the Savannah State College Bulletin and 
General Catalog. 

MARINE OFFICER PROGRAMS 

Qualified students may apply for an officer program leading to a 
commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine 
Corps. Commissions are offered in both ground and aviation 
components. The Platoon Leaders Course (PLC) is offered to 
freshmen, sophomores and juniors who attend precommissioning 
training during the summer. Financial Assistance and Flight Indoctri- 
nation Programs are available. Qualified seniors attend twelve weeks 
of training in the Officer Candidate Course (OCC) after graduation. 
No work in this program is offered on campus. For details, contact 
the placement office or the Marine Officer Selection Officer when he 
is on campus. 

LIBRARY 

The Lane Library, centrally located on campus, is a multi-resource 
and multi-service facility. The first floor houses a reference collec- 
tion, all periodicals and micromaterials, government documents, 
maps, vertical files, folios, archives, and a reading room. The technical 
services department, in which all orders are placed, cataloged, and 
processed, is also located on this floor. The department utilizes a 
CRT terminal and MODEM for all monograph cataloging as a 
member of the Southeastern Library Network. All audio-visuals, 
both software and hardware, the circulating collection, individualized 
study carrels, and typing facilities are located on the second floor. A 
television production studio and graphics laboratory are also located 



37 



on this floor. This sophisticated complex allows faculty to augment 
their classroom lectures with in-house production of video program- 
ming and broadcasting. 

The library collection combines traditional media such as mono- 
graphs, periodicals and micromaterials with more recent types of 
media such as audio and video tapes, recordings, filmstrips and 
motion pictures. An array of micromaterial readers and printers, 
video beam projectors, and audio hardware is available for constant 
use. Housed in the library are approximately 296,000 total resources, 
including 105,000 books and bound periodicals; 11,000 documents 
and maps; 170,000 microforms; 4,000 records, motion pictures, 
slides, and video tapes; and 900 newspaper and periodical subscrip- 
tions. 

The Lane Library's card catalog, a cooperative project of several 
Savannah area libraries, lists the location of most print and non-print 
materials in the following libraries: Armstrong State College, 
Savannah State College, Savannah Public Library, Georgia Historical 
Society, Memorial Medical Center, St. Joseph's Hospital, Georgia 
Regional Mental Health Clinic, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers- 
Savannah District, and the Chatham County Department of Human 
Resources. 

The Lane Library faculty and staff welcomes suggestions for the 
improvement of its collections and services.

STUDENT SERVICES, ACTIVITIES 



The Office of Student Affairs, administered by the Dean of 
Student Affairs, is responsible for all student services and activities. 
In addition to formal classroom instruction, the College recognizes 
the need for providing programs and services which contribute to a 
well-rounded college experience. Such programs are administered by 
the Office of Student Affairs through the following individuals: 
Counselors, Director of Placement, Director of Financial Aid, 
Director of Student Activities and the Campus Nurse. 

COUNSELING 

Counselors are available in the Counseling and Placement Office to 
assist students in making successful and realistic decisions and in 
choosing appropriate routes for attaining selected goals. The coun- 
seling process focuses on increasing the student's self-understanding 
and respect for his own ability to make decisions that will affect his 
life. All discussions are confidential. 

Counselors can assist students in clarifying educational and 
vocational objectives, in developing effective study skills and habits, 
and in dealing with problems of social and emotional significance. 
Counseling services are available to students at no charge. 

VETERANS SERVICES 

Armstrong State College maintains a full-time Office of Veterans 
Affairs located in the Administration Building. A professional 
counselor is available to assist veterans with admissions procedures, 
academic advisement, career development, and social and emotional 
adjustments to college. The office also employs a number of 
student/veterans to assist in meeting the needs of the veteran student 
body at Armstrong. 

Veterans, Disability, and War Orphans Assistance 

Eligibility. Veterans who served on active duty for other than 
training purposes for more than 180 days, any part of which 
occurred after June 1, 1966, are eligible for financial assistance to 
attend college through the G.I. Bill. Generally, sons and daughters of 
veterans whose death or total disablement was a result of service in 
the armed forces are eligible for financial benefits under the veterans 
program for educational assistance. 



39 



How to Apply. A prospective student must first make application 
to the College and gain approval for admission from the Office of the 
Registrar/Director of Admissions. A veteran cannot receive benefits 
while matriculating under a Continuing Education admission status. 
Once accepted, the veteran should go to the local office of the 
Georgia Department of Veterans Service located at 410 Mall 
Boulevard, Savannah, Georgia, and have an application for VA 
educational benefits completed. The veteran must carry a copy of his 
Record of Discharge, DD Form 214, and supporting documentation 
of dependency status (marriage certificate; divorce decree, if previ- 
ously married; and birth certificates of all dependent children). The 
veteran will then be given the forms to be presented to the Office of 
Veterans Affairs at Armstrong State College. Students transferring 
from other educational institutions, OJT programs, or corres- 
pondence schools must complete a "Request for Change of Place of 
Training/Change of Program" VA Form 1995 with the Armstrong 
Office of Veterans Affairs. At the time of initial matriculation each 
student /veteran must declare a specific program of study (major) and 
must follow the curriculum for this major without exception or 
benefits may be interrupted. Any student receiving government 
benefits from the Veterans Administration must check with the 
Armstrong State College Office of Veterans Affairs at the beginning 
of each quarter and file a form declaring the specific courses and 
number of credit hours which he is attempting. Each student/veteran 
is reminded that he must report any changes in his attendance, i.e., 
dropping, adding or withdrawal from school to the Armstrong Office 
of Veterans Affairs immediately following such action. Veterans 
entering school under the G.I. Bill should have sufficient funds to 
finance themselves until payments from the VA begin (approx- 
imately six weeks after application). 

TESTING SERVICES 

A variety of tests and inventories are available through, and often 
included in, counseling services. Such tests help students to evaluate 
personal, educational, or vocational needs. Test results are confi- 
dential. 

The following testing programs are administered regularly by 
members of the counseling staff: College Level Examination Program 
(CLEP), Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), Dental Hygiene 
Aptitude Test, Graduate Record Examination (GRE), National 
Teacher Examination (NTE), Regents Examination, the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test (SAT), and the Undergraduate Program Tests (Exit 
Examinations). Information and applications for the Dental Admis- 
sions Test, the Graduate Management Admission Test, the Graduate 



40 



School Foreign Language Test, Law School Admission Test, Profes- 
sional and Administrative Career Examination, and State Merit 
Examination may be obtained from the Counseling and Placement 
Office. 

ORIENTATION 

The decision to enter college for further education and knowledge 
is an important point in an individual's process of self-development. 
The Summer Orientation Program (CHAOS) at Armstrong State 
College is planned to aid the student in his transition to college by 
exposing him to the dynamics of successful decision-making. Using 
techniques that encourage the realization of possible outcomes and 
consequences, the student will learn to explore his possibilities with 
more understanding and confidence. 

Freshmen participating in this program will be given information 
concerning student activities programs, visit campus facilities, and 
plan their class schedules with academic advisors. 

An abbreviated orientation program is scheduled for students new 
to the college prior to registration Winter, Spring, and Summer 
Quarters. 

PLACEMENT OFFICE 

The Placement Office, located in the Administration Building, 
offers general assistance in the planning of career directions. The 
office operates a personal resume service for all regularly enrolled 
students and alumni of the college, receives listings of full-time career 
opportunities, and arranges on-campus recruiting with business, 
governmental and educational agencies. Students who wish to make 
use of the Placement Service should contact the Placement Office at 
least one year prior to completion of studies. 

The Placement Office also provides a job listing and referral 
system for currently enrolled students who are seeking part-time, 
temporary, or vacation employment. 

CONDUCT 

Every student who enrolls in a course at Armstrong State College 
commits himself, by the act of enrolling, to full compliance with the 
rules and regulations of the Honor System and Code of Conduct. 
The Honor System is outlined under "Academic Regulations" 
in this Bulletin and the Code of Conduct is published in the 
Armstrong Student Handbook, Students Illustrated. 



41 



Compliance with the regulations and policies of the faculty of 
Armstrong State College and the Regents of the University System of 
Georgia is assumed. To enroll is to agree to assume responsibility for 
adhering to policies and using established channels to promote 
change. Not to do so is sufficient basis for the college to terminate a 
student's enrollment. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS 

In addition to an outstanding academic program, Armstrong State 
College offers a complete program of extra-curricular student 
activities designed to contribute to the development of the student

V. STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 



Armstrong State College subscribes to the principle that the 
primary purpose of a student financial aid program is to provide 
financial assistance to students who, without such assistance, would 
be unable to attend college. The primary responsibility for financing 
a college education is the inherent obligation of the student and/or 
family. Financial assistance from Armstrong State College should be 
viewed as supplementary to the efforts of the student and /or family. 
An assessment of parental ability to contribute toward the student's 
educational expenses is made by the College Scholarship Service so 
that neither the parent, the student, nor Armstrong State College be 
required to bear an undue share of the financial responsibility. 

APPLICATION INFORMATION 

An applicant for student financial aid at Armstrong must: 

1. be enrolled or accepted for enrollment at the College; 

2. obtain a copy of the Armstrong State College Request for 
Student Financial Aid, complete the form, and return it by 1 
April for the coming academic year; 

3. submit a College Scholarship Service financial statement to the 
Office of Student Financial Aid by 1 April for the coming 
academic year; 

4. submit a Basic Educational Opportunity Grant eligibility report 
to the Office of Student Financial Aid by April preceding the 
next academic year. 

It may be necessary to complete additional forms depending on a 
student's year in school, major course of study, and/or eligibility for 
a particular program. Applications for financial assistance must be 
repeated annually Most student financial aid awards are for the entire 
academic year, with payments made to the student in equal quarterly 
installments. A student may, however, apply and be considered for 
financial assistance during the academic year, if funds are available. 



All student financial aid awards are contingent upon the avail- 
ability of funds and the recipient's maintaining satisfactory progress 
toward a degree. Also, each recipient must maintain good academic 
standing as defined in this Bulletin. 



50 



The minimum number of hours for which a student financial aid 
recipient may enroll per quarter varies from program to program. 
Most require at least 10 hours per quarter, and some require full-time 
status, or at least 12 hours per quarter. 

CATEGORIES OF AID 

The College provides necessary financial assistance through 
grants/scholarships, work, and/or loans. Grants and scholarships are 
awards that require neither service nor cash repayments. Opportu- 
nities for part-time employment are provided for eligible students, 
usually on-campus, who are paid federal minimum wages on an 
hourly basis. Loans require cash repayment, service repayment, or a 
combination of both. These funds are made available through the 
federal government, state government, and local sources. 

FEDERAL ASSISTANCE 

The BASIC EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GRANT PRO- 
GRAM is designed to provide financial assistance to those who need 
it to attend post-high school educational institutions. The BEOG is a 
grant and, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. It is estimated 
that academic year awards will range between $50.00 and $1,000.00. 

The SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY 
GRANT PROGRAM is available to eligible students who establish 
exceptional financial need as determined by the College Scholarship 
Service. The minimum award is $200.00 per academic year. The 
maximum may not exceed one-half of the student's established need, 
nor can it be more than one-half of the financial assistance supplied 
through the College. 

Currently, the COLLEGE WORK-STUDY PROGRAM allows an 
eligible student to work each class day during the quarter. Satisfac- 
tory work performance is mandatory. 

A NATIONAL DIRECT STUDENT LOAN may be awarded to an 
eligible student who has established a need through the College 
Scholarship Service. Interest will be computed at the rate of three 
percent per annum simple interest on the unpaid principal balance. 
Interest is not charged and repayment is not required until nine 
months after the borrower ceases to be a student. 

FEDERAL NURSING STUDENT LOANS AND/OR SCHOLAR- 
SHIPS are available to students who have: (1) established a financial 



51 



need through the College Scholarship Service, (2) been accepted for 
enrollment by Armstrong State College, and (3) been admitted to the 
Nursing Program by the Department of Nursing. 

In-service criminal justice personnel may qualify for a grant and/or 
loan under the LAW ENFORCEMENT EDUCATION PROGRAM. 
Awards are made on a priority basis. An additional application is 
required. 

STATE ASSISTANCE 

GEORGIA HIGHER EDUCATION ASSISTANCE COR- 
PORATION. Under this program, guaranteed loans are provided by 
private lending institutions to residents of Georgia. The loans accrue 
interest at the rate of 7 percent simple interest. Loans are made by 
lending institutions that have signed a contract with and have the 
gurantee of GHEAC. The process involves application for the loan by 
the student and parents, certification by the educational institution, 
and final approval by GHEAC. Students who are unable to secure 
funds locally may apply for a STATE DIRECT LOAN. In this 
instance, the State of Georgia provides the funds and GHEAC 
guarantees the loan. Students enrolled in certain health career fields 
may elect to cancel all or a portion of their state direct loans by 
practicing in their fields. Applications and additional information 
may be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

GEORGIA INCENTIVE SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded to res- 
idents who began post-high school education after 1 April, 1974, and 
whose eligibility has been determined by the College Scholarship 
Service financial analysis. All veterans who were residents of Georgia 
at the time of their entry into military service may apply. 

The BOARD OF REGENTS' FUND sponsors a program under 
which Georgia residents may qualify for financial assistance at units 
of the University System. Applicants must be in the upper 25% of 
their class and have established a financial need through the College 
Scholarship Service. Recipients must agree to work in the state, at an 
occupation for which they are qualified educationally, one year for 
each $1,000 received. If unable to meet this obligation, the student is 
expected to repay the full amount with interest at the rate of 3 
percent simple interest. 

Students may be recommended for employment on the INSTITU- 
TIONAL STUDENT ASSISTANTS PROGRAM. Some departments 
and offices of the College have funds available to hire student 
workers. Initial contacts should be made by the student with the 
appropriate department head.

VI. ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE 



GENERAL INFORMATION 

Application forms for admission to Armstrong State College are 
attached to this Bulletin and provided by the Admissions Office 
upon request. An application cannot be considered until all required 
forms are properly executed and returned to the Admissions Office. 
Applications should be on file in the Admissions Office at least 
twenty days before the opening of the quarter in which the applicant 
wishes to enter. 

The applicant must be at least sixteen years old on or before 
registration date and must give evidence of good moral character, 
promise of growth and development, seriousness of purpose, and a 
sense of social responsibility. Armstrong State College reserves the 
right to examine and appraise the character, the personality, and the 
physical fitness of the applicant. The College further reserves the 
right to examine any applicant by the use of achievement and 
aptitude tests and to require additional biographical data and an 
interview before the applicant is accepted or rejected. If an interview 
is required, the applicant will be notified. 

Armstrong State College reserves the right to refuse to accept any 
or all of the credits from any high school or other institution, 
notwithstanding its accredited status, when the College determines 
through investigation or otherwise that the quality of instruction at 
such high school or other institution is for any reason deficient or 
unsatisfactory. The judgment of the College on this question shall be 
final. 

On the basis of achievement as reflected by high school or college 
grades and academic potential as shown by scores on the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test, an evaluation of each applicant's readiness to 
undertake college work will be made. The Admissions Officer may 
refer any application to the Admissions Committee of the College for 
study and advice. 

The decision as to whether an applicant shall be accepted or 
rejected shall be made by the Admissions Officer in accordance with 
admission policies and subject to the applicant's right of appeal as 
provided in the policies of the Board of Regents of the University 
System. The Admissions Officer shall, as promptly as practicable, 
inform the applicant of the action taken upon his application. 



55 



The College reserves the right to terminate acceptance of 
applications when enrollment capacity is reached. The College 
further reserves the right to reject an applicant who is not a resident 
of the State of Georgia. 

All students enrolled at Armstrong State College are required to 
affirm that they will abide by the provisions of the Honor Code. For 
a detailed explanation of the Honor System see the REGULATIONS 
section of this bulletin. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR FRESHMAN APPLICANTS 
All freshman applicants must meet the following requirements: 

1. a. Certificate of graduation from an accredited high school. A 
transcript of the applicant's high school record must be 
submitted by the high school directly to the College and must 
show credit for a minimum of sixteen units, including the 
following subjects: English (4 units); Mathematics (2 units of 
which one unit must be in algebra, although two units are 
desirable; for students entering engineering or scientific fields, 
two units of algebra and one unit of geometry are needed); 
Science (2 units); Social Studies (2 units), and other units 
sufficient for graduation. 

OR 

b. Successful completion of the General Education Develop- 
ment Test (GED). Specific scores required are listed under the 
categories of admission below. A score report form must be 
submitted directly to the College from the GED testing center 
where the student took the test or by DANTES, 2318 South 
Park Street, Madison, Wisconsin 53713 (if the student took the 
test through the United States Armed Forces Institute while in 
military service). 

2. Satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the 
College Entrance Examination Board. Specific scores required 
are listed under the categories of admission below. Official 
results of this test must be filed with the Admissions Office by 
the final date for the submission of an application for the 
quarter in which a student wishes to enroll. The Scholastic 
Aptitude Test is given in all states and many foreign countries at 
least six times annually. Students wishing to make application 
to take the test may secure application forms from their 
secondary school principal or counselor or from the College 
Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey 
08540, or Box 1025, Berkeley, California 94701. 



56 






3. A non-refundable application fee of $10 must accompany the 
application form. This fee does not bind the College to admit 
the applicant, nor does it indicate acceptance of the applicant's 
qualifications. If a student wishes to enter the College at the 
beginning of a quarter later than that for which he was initially 
accepted, he must request reactivation of his application for 
admission. If the student has not enrolled within one year from 
the date of his initial acceptance, he must reapply and resubmit 
the application fee by the date specified. 

4. If the medical history of an entering student is such that his 
participation in required physical education instruction is not 
recommended or should be limited or if the student is under the 
care of a physician due to a special medical problem, he must 
have a physical examination prior to his admission. A physical 
examination prior to admission is required for all students in 
the Nursing Program. Entering students who are in good health 
and who are not under the care of a physician must submit a 
signed statement to this effect along with their completed 
applications for admission. 

CATEGORIES OF ADMISSION 

Freshman applicants may be admitted to Armstrong State College 
in one of two admission categories, Regular or Conditional admis- 
sion. Specific requirements for these categories of admission follow: 

Regular Admission 
Applicants for the Regular Admission category must: 

1. Have a total score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the 
College Entrance Examination Board of at least 750 on the 
combined verbal and mathematics sections, with a score of not 
less than 300 on the verbal section; and 

2. Have a 1.5 predicted freshman grade-point average as deter- 
mined by the College Prediction Formula; and 

3. Have (if applicable) no scores less than 45 on the GED. 

Conditional Admission 
Applicants who are not admitted in the Regular Admission 
category may be granted conditional admission if they: 

1. Have a total score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the 
College Entrance Examination Board of not less than 550 on 



57 



the combined verbal and mathematics sections, with a score of 
not less than 300 on the verbal section; and 

2. Have a predicted freshman grade-point average of not less than 
1.2 as determined by the College Prediction Formula; and 

3. Have (if applicable) scores below 45 on the GED. 

Applicants who are conditionally admitted to the College must take 
a battery of tests (relating to English, Reading, and Mathematics) 
derived from the College Guidance and Placement Program of the 
College Entrance Examination Board. These students will remain 
conditionally admitted until such time as the results of this battery 
of tests are available. These tests must be taken and the results 
known before the student first registers for classes. Students who 
satisfactorily complete the entire battery of tests will be granted 
regular admission. If any part of the test results is unsatisfactory, the 
student's conditional admission status will be continued, and he will 
be required to take courses in the Academic Skills Laboratory in his 
area(s) of weakness. While the student is on conditional admission 
status, he must have the classes in which he is enrolled approved by 
the Head of the Academic Skills Laboratory. A student may 
demonstrate proficiency by achieving a grade of "Satisfactory" in 
each of the Academic Skills Laboratory Courses required. Any 
student who remains conditionally admitted for six consecutive 
quarters from the date of his admission or who receives three grades 
of "Unsatisfactory" in any one Academic Skills Laboratory Course 
will not be permitted to continue at the College. Test dates for the 
Comparative Guidance and Placement Examination are listed in the 
Academic Calendar published in this Bulletin. 

APPLICANTS WHO DO NOT MEET THE GENERAL REQUIRE- 
MENTS FOR ADMISSION AND THE REQUIREMENTS FOR 
REGULAR OR CONDITIONAL ADMISSION WILL NOT BE 
ELIGIBLE FOR ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT 
AND CREDIT BY EXAMINATION 

Armstrong State College gives advanced placement, or in some 
cases college credit, for college level high school courses, on the basis 
of the student's grade on the Advanced Placement Examination of 
the CEEB or the SAT achievement tests and approval by the 
appropriate department head of Armstrong State College. 

College credit may be granted for satisfactory scores on selected 
tests of the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) for 

58 



satisfactory completion of appropriate courses and tests offered 
through the United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI), and for 
military service schools and experience as recommended by the 
Commission on Accreditation of Service Experiences of the Amer- 
ican Council on Education. Such credits may not exceed more than 
one-fourth of the work counted towards a degree. 

Specifically, the student with a strong academic background may, 
through certain examinations, demonstrate competence in: Art 200; 
English 121; Foreign Language 101, 102, 103; History 114, 115, 
251, 252; Mathematics 101, 103, 104, 201, 220; Music 200; Natural 
Science without Laboratory; Nursing 101; Political Science 113. For 
information concerning the examinations which apply to the specific 
areas, please make inquiry to the Office of Admissions, the Office of 
the Registrar, the Office of Counselling and Placement, or the Head 
of the appropriate Academic Department. 



It is possible for a student, through a combination of the advanced 
placement and credit by examination programs, to begin his formal 
instructional program at Armstrong State College as a sophomore. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSFER APPLICANTS 

1. Transfer applicants will follow the same procedures as freshman 
applicants, except that transfer applicants who will have 
achieved sophomore standing at the time of their entrance will 
not be required to submit their high school records. Such 
records may be required by the Admissions Office, but 
normally the transcripts of previous college records will suffice 
in place of the high school record. A transfer applicant must ask 
the Registrar of each college he has previously attended to mail 
an official transcript of his record to the Admissions Office at 
Armstrong State College, regardless of the transferability of the 
credits. 

2. Transfer applicants who will enter with less than sophomore 
standing (less than 45 quarter hours completed) must meet 
entrance requirements of both freshman and transfer applicants 
and will be required to submit their high school records as well 
as transcripts of college records. 

3. A transfer applicant will not be eligible for admission to 
Armstrong State College unless he is eligible to return to the last 
college attended on the date he expects to enter Armstrong. A 
student who is on suspension from another college because of 

59 



poor scholarship or for disciplinary reasons will not be eligible 
for admission. 

4. A transfer applicant will be considered for admission to 
Armstrong State College if, on all work attempted at other 
institutions, his academic performance as shown by his grade 
point average is equivalent to the minimum standard required 
by Armstrong State College students of comparable standing. 
(See chart under Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy in 
the "Academic Regulations" section of this Bulletin.) 

5. Credit will be given for transfer work in which the student 
received a grade of "D" or above, with the percentage of "D" 
grades not to exceed twenty (20) percent of the total hours 
being transferred. College credit will not be allowed for such 
courses as remedial English or remedial mathematics or courses 
basically of secondary school level. 

6. Credits earned at an institution which is not a member of the 
appropriate regional accrediting agency can be accepted on a 
provisional basis only. A student transferring from an institu- 
tion which is not a member of a regional accrediting agency 
must achieve a "C" average on his first fifteen quarter hours of 
work at Armstrong in order to be eligible to continue. In certain 
areas he may be required to validate credits by examination. In 
computing cumulative grade averages, only the work attempted 
at Armstrong will be considered. 

7. The amount of credit that Armstrong will allow for work done 
in another institution within a given period of time may not 
exceed the normal amount of credit that could have been 
earned at Armstrong during that time. A maximum of 100 
quarter hours may be transferred from a junior college. (This 
restriction is waived for students matriculating in the Bachelor 
of Science degree programs in Nursing and Dental Hygiene 
Education.) At least half of the courses in the major field must 
be taken at Armstrong. 

8. Not more than one-fourth of the work counted toward a degree 
may be taken through correspondence or extension courses; no 
correspondence courses may be used to meet requirements in 
the major field or the related field for the bachelor's degree. No 
correspondence course may be taken while a student is enrolled 
at Armstrong State College without prior approval of the Dean 
of the College and the head of the department in which the 
student is majoring. Correspondence credit will not be accepted 
for courses in English composition or foreign language. 



60 



CONTINUING EDUCATION STUDENTS 

All military personnel and adults, age 25 years or older, who wish 
to take regularly scheduled courses for personal enrichment and 
other non-degree objectives may be enrolled for credit or as auditors. 
If these students enroll for credit, they must meet all prerequisites 
for the course involved; if they enroll as auditors, they must have the 
permission of the instructor involved. Admission of Continuing 
Education students requires: (1) evidence of high school graduation 
or possession of GED certificate or (2) transcript from last college 
attended. Students on probation or suspension will not be permitted 
to enroll in this program without approval by the Admissions 
Committee. 

A maximum of 45 quarter hours credit may be earned by students 
enrolled in this classification. Should a degree become the objective 
of a Continuing Education student, he must apply for admission as a 
degree candidate, meeting regular admission requirements. 

All college fees apply to students in this classification with the 
exception of the application fee which is not required until the 
student requests admission as a degree candidate. Military personnel 
pay fees in accordance with negotiated military contracts. 

READMISSION OF FORMER STUDENTS 

A student who has not been enrolled at Armstrong for one or 
more quarters must apply for readmission on a form provided by the 
Admissions Office. This requirement does not apply to students who 
do not register for courses during the summer quarter. A former 
student who has not attended another college since leaving 
Armstrong may be readmitted provided he is not on suspension at 
the time he wishes to reenter. A former student who has attended 
another college since leaving Armstrong must meet requirements for 
readmission as a transfer student or as a transient student, whichever 
is applicable. A student who is readmitted after an absence from the 
College for more than two years must meet degree requirements as 
listed in the bulletin in effect at the time of his return. 



TRANSIENT STUDENTS 

Transient student status means that a student is admitted to 
Armstrong State College only for a specified period of time, 
normally for one quarter. An applicant for transient status must file 
a regular application form and submit a statement from his Dean or 
registrar that he is in good standing and has permission to take 
specific courses at Armstrong to be transferred to his own institution 
when satisfactorily completed. Since transient students are not 

61 



admitted as regular Armstrong students, transcripts of college work 
completed elsewhere are not usually required of such applicants. A 
transient student who wishes to remain at Armstrong longer than one 
quarter must submit an additional statement from his Dean or 
Registrar, or he must meet all requirements for regular admission as a 
transfer student. 

ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE ACCELERATED 
PROGRAM FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

High school students who have completed the eleventh grade, who 
have met the criteria for admission to the program and who maintain 
its standards will be permitted to enroll for college credit in at least 
one course but not more than two courses each quarter at Armstrong 
State College while they complete the senior year of high school. 
Upon graduation from high school, these students will be admitted as 
regular students of the College. 

Through this program, a student may complete over two-thirds of 
the freshman year of college before he begins his regular college 
career. Students accepted in the program may choose any freshman 
course for which they meet all prerequisites, with permission of their 
high school principal or counselor and college advisor. 

A student forfeits the privilege of this program if in any quarter 
his grade in the college course is below C or his high school average in 
academic courses is below B. 

The College will consider a student for this program only upon 
written recommendation of his high school principal or counselor. In 
the view of the College, it is only these individuals who can judge the 
circumstances that may make the program valuable and practicable 
for any student. 

To be admitted to the program a student must satisfy all of these 
criteria: 

1. written recommendation by the Principal or counselor of the 
high school; 

2. completion of the eleventh grade in an accredited high school; 

3. a combined verbal and mathematics score of 1000 on CEEB 

tests. 



62 



EARLY ADMISSION AND JOINT 
ENROLLMENT PROGRAMS 

Armstrong State College offers an early admission program for 
those students who have completed the eleventh grade in high school 
and who have demonstrated outstanding academic potential. The 
criteria for admission to this program are the same as those listed for 
the Accelerated Program. 

Additionally, the college cooperates with the Chatham County 
School System in the offering of a joint enrollment program which is 
an early admission program allowing the student to enroll full-time at 
the college while remaining on the rolls of his local high school. After 
successfully meeting all established criteria for the early admission 
program, the student will be awarded a high school diploma at the 
end of his freshman year in college. The college Admissions 
Committee must approve all applicants accepted for admission to the 
joint enrollment program. For further information on this program 
the prospective applicant should consult his high school counselor 
and/or request information from the Admissions Office at Armstrong 
State College. 

FOREIGN STUDENTS 

It is recommended that, whenever possible, foreign students begin 
their attendance at the College in the fall quarter. The college also 
recommends that a foreign student attend an ELS language center 
prior to enrollment. (Applications for ELS are available from the 
Admissions Coordinator, ELS Language Centers, 3331 Ocean Park 
Blvd., Suite 201, Santa Monica, California 90405.) 

A student from a country other than the United States who is 
interested in attending Armstrong must meet the following require- 
ments before application is made: 

1. He must have met the requirements of freshman applicants. 

2. He must have an official transcript of his academic record 
mailed to the Admissions Office at Armstrong with an official 
translation. 

3. He must take the SAT of the College Entrance Examination 
Board in the testing center nearest his home and ask that the 
results be sent to Armstrong. 

4. He must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language and ask 
that the results be sent to Armstrong. (Applications for the test 



63 



are available from the Educational Testing Service, Box 899, 
Princeton, N.J. 08540.) 

5. He must submit a statement of financial resources prior to 
attendance. 

If the applicant meets the academic requirements for admission, 
he will be sent an application form. After it has been returned and 
approved, the applicant will be sent an 1-20 Form (1-20 A and 
1-20B), which he can take to the American consul to ask for a 
student visa. When he arrives on campus, he will be tested in English 
composition for class placement. 

No scholarships are available for students who are not legal 
residents of Georgia. All foreign students must pay non-resident fees. 

ADMISSION OF VETERANS 

After having been accepted at Armstrong State College and upon 
receipt of Certification of Eligibility and Entitlement from the 
Veterans Administration, veterans may attend under Public Law 358 
(Veterans Readjustment Benefit Act of 1966), Public Law 815 
(disabled), Public Law 894 (disabled), Public Law 634 (war orphans), 
or Public Law 361 (children of permanently disabled veterans). 
Students under Public Laws 358, 361, or 634 should be prepared to 
pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. 

APPLICANTS SPONSORED BY VOCATIONAL 
REHABILITATION 

Those applicants sponsored by Vocational Rehabilitation or other 
community agencies must apply at least six (6) weeks before the 
beginning of any quarter to insure proper processing of applications. 

ADMISSION TO THE ASSOCIATE IN 
SCIENCE DEGREE PROGRAM IN NURSING 

Nursing requires a variety of skills and aptitudes and offers 
opportunities for service at differing levels of expertise. The associate 
degree nurse utilizes theories and principles from bio-psycho-social 
sciences and nursing as a basis for the nursing process. He/she uses 
the nursing process to support, promote or alter the client's adaptive 
state in response to identified, commonly occurring, health stressors. 

The associate degree nurse is prepared to work co-operatively with 
colleagues on the nursing team in those health agencies where the 
setting is structured and supervision is available. 



64 



The candidate for the associate degree nursing program should 
have good physical and mental health as well as those personal 
qualifications appropriate for nursing. 

General Information 

Admission to Armstrong State College does not in any way 
guarantee formal admission to the Associate Degree program in 
Nursing. It is important that the applicant for admission to this 
program file all papers required for admission consideration as early 
as possible in the academic year preceding the Fall Quarter in which 
the applicant wishes to enroll. Applicants who are on academic 
probation or suspension from another college will not be considered. 
It is recommended that applicants who have been away from school 
for a considerable period of time enroll in at least one academic 
course in an accredited college of their choice during the school year 
or summer preceding their planned entrance into the Nursing 
program. All applicants must take a Nursing Admissions Test, except 
those with a baccalaureate degree in another area or those who have 
successfully completed at least two of the required science courses in 
the Associate Degree curriculum. 

The Admissions Committee in the Department of Nursing will act 
only on completed applications and will schedule each year three 
dates for admissions decisions — the last Friday in January, the last 
Friday in February, and the last Friday in April. No applications 
filed later than April 15 will be considered. Until such time as the 
class is filled, students will be admitted to the program on a space 
available basis by date of their completed applications if they meet 
all the criteria for admission. When a limited number of spaces 
remain for a class and when there is an excess number of applications 
bearing the same date, admission decisions will be based on the 
applicants' academic records. When the class has been filled, 
admissions will be suspended. Students who qualify for admission 
but who are not admitted because of lack of space may re-apply for 
the following year's class, repeating all application procedures. 

In addition to the normal college tuition and fees, the student in 
the Nursing program must purchase uniforms and some supplies and 
equipment. Each student is required to wear the official uniform of 
the Nursing program. Approximately two weeks before the opening 
of school, each student admitted to the program will receive 
information, along with approximate charges, concerning supplies, 
equipment, and uniforms needed for the Fall Quarter. Students in 
the program are responsible for providing their own transportation to 
and from the community hospitals and other health agencies which 

65 



furnish their facilities for use in clinical instruction within the 
program. 

How to Apply 

1. Complete all papers required in the application for admission to 
Armstrong State College. The procedures for admission to the

Nursing will not be considered until the student has received 
regular admission to the College. 

3. The applicant must send SAT scores and the appropriate tran-

completion of the above requirements. It is suggested that the 
student maintain contact with the Counselor periodically during 
the period in which he/she is working to meet the above 
requirements. 

Readmission to the Program 

Students who have been admitted to and have enrolled in the 
Associate Degree program in Nursing but who have either withdrawn 
or have been dropped from the program may apply for re-admission 
to the program only if they have a cumulative college grade-point 
average of 2.0 (C) at the time they wish to re-enter the program and 
only if they have received passing grades in all science courses 
attempted. A student who has been dropped from the program a 
second time is ineligible for readmission to the program.

ADMISSION TO THE ASSOCIATE IN 

SCIENCE DEGREE PROGRAM IN 

DENTAL HYGIENE 

The profession of Dental Hygiene is an ideal career for individuals 
interested in science and health services. The growing and constant 
demand for graduate dental hygienists assures regular hours and good 
compensation. 

A dental hygienist works under the general provision of a dentist 
and performs a number of dental functions. The hygienist's activities 

69 



usually include performing oral prophylaxis (cleaning of the teeth), 
instructing patients in dental health, taking, developing and 
mounting dental x-rays, applying fluorides and sometimes assisting 
the dentist in chairside and laboratory duties. 

There are certain personal qualifications which are essential for a 
successful dental hygienist. These are good health, neat appearance, 
high moral character, a desire to be of service to others, and the 
ability to get along well with people. 

The Armstrong State College program consists of seven quarters of 
full time study (two academic years and the intervening summer). 
Applicants are matriculated once each year, in September. 

There are no definite age requirements or restrictions for the basic 
Dental Hygiene program. However, all applicants must be graduates 
of an accredited high school or its equivalent. Students may be either 
married or single and must be citizens of the United States, either 
natural born or naturalized. 

General Information 

Admission to Armstrong State College does not in any way 
guarantee formal admission to the Associate Degree program in 
Dental Hygiene. It is important that the applicant for admission to 
this program file all papers required for admission consideration as 
early as possible in the academic year preceding the Fall Quarter in 
which the applicant wishes to enroll. The major part of an applicant's 
high school work should be in the college preparatory program and 
should include two years of mathematics. Because of the heavy 
emphasis on science in the dental hygiene curriculum, it is important 
that the applicant have a good foundation in biology and chemistry. 
The quality of the applicant's high school work in English and Social 
Studies is important in the evaluation of total qualifications for 
admission to the program. Other factors influencing the decision of 
the Dental Hygiene Admissions Committee are a 2.0 (C) or better 
high school grade-point average and acceptable SAT scores (com- 
posite verbal and mathematics) as well as an acceptable score on the 
Dental Hygiene Aptitude Test. It is recommended that applicants 
who have been away from school for a considerable period of time 
enroll in at least one course in an accredited college of their choice in 
the school year or summer preceding their planned entrance into the 
Dental Hygiene program. Unless specifically approved by the Head of 
the Department, credit will not be given for courses taken in another 
school of Dental Hygiene. Applicants who are on academic probation 
or suspension from another college will not be considered. 



70 



In addition to the normal college tuition and fees, the student in 
the Dental Hygiene program must purchase some supplies and 
equipment. Each student is required to wear the official uniform of 
the Dental Hygiene program. These uniforms are ordered during the 
Fall Quarter. Approximately two weeks before the opening of 
school, each student admitted to the program will receive infor- 
mation, along with approximate charges, concerning supplies and 
equipment needed for the Fall Quarter. Students in the program are 
responsible for providing their own transportation to and from 
community agencies when they are assigned to these agencies for 
field experiences. 

How to Apply 

1. Complete all papers required in the application for admission to 
Armstrong State College. The procedures for admission to the 
College are outlined in this section of the Bulletin. Mark the 
application For Dental Hygiene Only. 

2. Complete the Personal Data Sheet for the Dental Hygiene 
program. 

3. Have the dental form completed by a dentist. 

4. It is recommended that all applicants take the Dental Hygiene 
Aptitude Test. In order for the test scores to reach the 
Department of Dental Hygiene before April 5, the test should be 
taken during the Fall or Winter testing period. 

Applicants may address the Director of Admissions or the Head of 
the Department of Dental Hygiene at Armstrong State College if 
they require additional information concerning admission to the 
Associate in Science degree program in Dental Hygiene. 

REGISTRATION 

Complete instructions concerning registration are made available 
to all students at the beginning of the registration period. Registra- 
tion includes academic advisement, selection of courses, enrollment 
in classes, and payment of fees. Students who are employed may 
request priority in registration at pre-registration in the Registrar's 
Office. Full details regarding registration are provided to all incoming 
students after they have been approved for admission to the College.

RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS OF THE BOARD 
OF REGENTS 



To be considered a legal resident of Georgia, the applicant must 
establish the following facts to the satisfaction of the Registrar. 

1. (a) If a person is 18 years of age or older, he or she may register 
as a resident student only upon a showing that he or she has 
been a legal resident of Georgia for a period of at least twelve 
months immediately preceding the date of registration. 

(b) No emancipated minor or person 18 years of age or older 
shall be deemed to have gained or acquired in-state residence 
status for fee purposes while attending any educational institu- 
tion in this State, in the absence of a clear demonstration that 
he or she has in fact established legal residence in this State. 

2. If a person is under 18 years of age, he or she may register as a 
resident student only upon a showing that his or her supporting 
parent or guardian has been a legal resident of Georgia for a 
period of at least twelve months immediately preceding the date 
of registration. 

3. A full-time faculty member of the University System and his or 
her spouse and dependent children may register on the payment 
of resident fees even though he or she has not been a legal 
resident of Georgia for the preceding twelve months. 

4. Non-resident graduate students who hold teaching or research 
assistantships requiring at least one-third time service may 
register as students in the institution in which they are 
employed on payment of resident fees. 

5. Full-time teachers in the public schools of Georgia and their 
dependent children may enroll as students in the University 
System institutions on the payment of resident fees, when such 
teachers have been legal residents of Georgia for the imme- 
diately preceeding nine months, were engaged in teaching 
during such nine month period, and have been employed to 
teach full time in the public schools of Georgia during the 
ensuing school year. 

6. All aliens shall be classified as non-resident students; provided, 
however, that an alien who is living in this country under a visa 
permitting permanent residence shall have the same privilege of 



72 



qualifying for resident status for fee purposes as a citizen of the 
United States. 

7. Foreign students who attend institutions of the University 
System under financial sponsorship of civic or religious groups 
located in this State, may be enrolled upon the payment of 
resident fees, provided the number of such foreign students in 
any one institution does not exceed the quota approved by the 
Board of Regents for that institution. 

8. If the parents or legal guardian of a minor change his or her 
legal residence to another state following a period of legal 
residence in Georgia, the minor may continue to take courses 
for a period of twelve consecutive months on the payment of 
resident fees. After the expiration of the twelve month period 
the student may continue his registration only upon the 
payment of fees at the non-resident rate. 

9. In the event that a legal resident of Georgia is appointed as 
guardian on a non-resident minor, such minor will not be 
permitted to register as a resident student until the expiration 
of one year from the date of court appointment, and then only 
upon proper showing that such appointment was not made to 
avoid payment of the non-resident fees. 




73 



VII. ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 



ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Academic advisement is made available to each student at 
Armstrong State College. The Dean of the College gives overall 
direction to the advisement program, with the appropriate depart- 
ment Head coordinating advisement activities within the various 
departments. The student is expected to seek advisement from the 
department in which he is taking a major. The advisor maintains a 
record of his advisees' academic progress from quarter to quarter. 
The student who does not take advantage of the academic 
advisement program at the College should be reminded that he is 
responsible for fulfilling the requirements of his degree program and 
must be extremely careful to observe all regulations for admission to 
courses, such as the requirement of prerequisite courses, sometimes 
with a specified grade. Credit for a course is invalid unless all 
prerequisite requirements are observed. 

During summer orientation and before registration, all new 
students, both freshman and transfer students, will meet with faculty 
advisors. The faculty advisors will guide them at this time in mapping 
out a schedule for the fall quarter. The proper time for meeting with 
faculty advisors from that point on is during the advisement periods 
each quarter listed in the college calendar. All faculty advisors, 
however, will be happy to give academic counseling at any time 
during a given quarter, if students need to talk with them. 

During the six quarters of his junior and senior years, the student 
must have his course selection approved in writing each quarter 
before registration by an advisor from the department in which he is 
majoring. During these last two years, the advisor will keep a record 
of the courses the student takes and the grades he makes, and, at 
least two quarters prior to the student's graduation, when the 
student obtains the Application for Graduation, the advisor will 
signify to the Registrar that the student has completed all require- 
ments for graduation in his major program up to that time, and is, 
therefore, recommended for graduation upon his completion of the 
remaining requirements in his degree program. 

RELATING TO DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

1. Each student is responsible for fulfilling the requirements of 
the degree program which he has chosen, in accordance with 
the regulations of the college catalogue. 



74 



2. Exceptions to course requirements for a degree are permit- 
ted only with the written approval of the Dean of the 
College, upon the recommendation of the department head. 

3. A student will normally graduate under the catalogue in 
effect at the time of his admission to the College. 
Armstrong State College, however, reserves the right to 
change any provision listed in this catalogue, including but 
not limited to academic requirements for graduation, 
without actual notice to individual students. If a student has 
been absent from the College for two or more consecutive 
years, he should expect to meet all requirements in effect at 
the time of his return. 

4. Not more than one-fourth of the work counted toward a 
degree may consist of courses taken by correspondence, 
extension, or examination. No correspondence courses may 
be used to meet the requirements in the major field or 
related fields for the Bachelor's degree or in English 
composition or foreign language. No correspondence 
courses may be taken while a student is enrolled, without 
prior approval of the Dean of the College and the head of 
the department in which the student is majoring. 

5. By state law, one of the requirements for a diploma or 
certificate from schools supported by the state of Georgia is 
a demonstration of proficiency in United States history and 
government and in Georgia history and government. A 
student at Armstrong State College may demonstrate such 
proficiency by: 

a. Examinations — Students may take either the relevant 
CLEP, SAT Achievement, or Advanced Placement test 
(making their own arrangements). 

b. Credit in the following — for U.S. and Georgia Consti- 
tution: Political Science 113; for U.S. and Georgia History: 
History 251 or 252 or any upper division course, in U.S. 
History. 

6. To qualify for the baccalaureate degree, a student must earn 
at Armstrong at least 45 quarter hours of credit applicable 
toward the degree, and he must complete successfully at 
Armstrong a majority of the credits required in his major 
field of study. Additionally, the student must complete 
successfully at Armstrong a majority of the upper division 
credits required in his major field of study. For the 

75 



Associate Degree, the student must complete at least 45 
quarter hours of course work at Armstrong State College. 

7. For graduation the student must earn an over-all average of 
2.0 or better considering work taken at all colleges, 
computed in such manner that a course will be counted 
only once, regardless of the number of times that it has 
been repeated. The grade earned in the last attempt will 
determine the number of honor points assigned for gradua- 
tion. Additionally, the student must earn a grade-point 
average of 2.0 or better on each of the following: 

a. all work at Armstrong 

b. all courses in the major field. 

8. To qualify for a second baccalaureate degree, a candidate 
must earn at Armstrong at least 45 additional hours of 
credit and, of course, meet all qualitative requirements for 
the degree. 

9. Before a degree will be conferred upon a student by 
Armstrong State College, he must pay all fees and must 
submit to the Registrar his completed Application for 
Graduation two quarters before graduation. A candidate for 
a degree, unless excused in writing by the President, Dean of 
the College, or Dean of Student Affairs, must attend the 
graduation exercises at which a degree is to be conferred 
upon him. 

10. Each student must successfully complete the Regents 
Examination and must take an Exit Examination in his 
major field as requirements for graduation. 

COURSE AND STUDY LOAD 

The normal course load for full-time students is 15-18 quarter 
hours (and a course in physical education during the freshman and 
sophomore years). An average student should devote at least thirty 
hours each week, in addition, to course preparation. 

A full-time student is defined as one who is registered for 12 or 
more quarter hours. A part-time student is one registered for less 
than 12 quarter hours. 



76 



The maximum course load for a student who works full-time is 11 
quarter hours. A working student should plan about ten hours 
preparation per week for each 5 quarter hour course. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

A student who has earned 45 quarter hours of credit will be 
classified as a sophomore; 90 quarter hours of credit, as a junior; 135 
quarter hours of credit, as a senior. 

PERMISSION FOR OVERLOAD OR COURSES 
AT ANOTHER COLLEGE 

Permission to enroll for more than 18 quarter hours will be 
granted by the Registrar to a student: 

1. with an average grade of "B" for the preceding quarter, or 

2. with an overall gradepoint average of 3.0, or 

3. requiring an extra course in one of the two quarters prior to 
graduation. 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quarter 
hours in any one quarter. 

A student who is on academic probation will not be permitted to 
register for more than 18 quarter hours in any one quarter. 

Exceptions to these limitations may be made only by the Dean of 
the College. 

A student enrolled at Armstrong who at the same time takes 
courses for credit at another college may not transfer such credit to 
Armstrong, unless he has obtained in advance the written permission 
of the Dean of the Armstrong State College to register for those 
courses. 

REPORTS AND GRADES 

The faculty feels that students in college should be held 
accountable for their scholarship. Accordingly, grade reports, 
warnings of deficient scholarship and all such notices are not sent to 
parents or guardians by the Registrar except on request. Instead, the 
students themselves receive these reports and are expected to contact 
their advisors whenever their work is unsatisfactory. Grade reports 



77 



are issued at the end of each quarter. Reports of unsatisfactory 
grades are issued in the middle of each quarter. Each student has 
access to an advisor: in addition, the Registrar and all instructors are 
available to help any student seeking assistance. 

Armstrong State College awards the following grades which are 
used in the determination of a student's grade-point average: 





Grade 


Ho 


nor Points 


A 


(excellent) 




4.0 


B 


(good) 




3.0 


C 


(satisfactory) 




2.0 


D 


(passing) 




1.0 


F 


(failing) 




0.0 


WF 


(withdrew, failing) 




0.0 



The student's cumulative grade-point average recorded on his 
permanent record card is determined by dividing the total honor 
points earned by the total hours attempted. The student's institu- 
tional grade-point average is determined by dividing the total honor 
points earned by the total hours attempted, with hours and honor 
points for repeated courses not duplicated in the calculation. 

Armstrong State College also uses the following symbols for grade 
reports. These symbols carry no honor points and are not included in 
the determination of either the cumulative grade-point average or the 
institutional grade-point average. 

Sy?nbol Explanation 

W withdrew, no penalty 

I incomplete 

S satisfactory 

U unsatisfactory 

V audit 

K credit by examination 

P passing, academic skills 

A student who receives a report of "I" for a course should consult 
his instructor at once and arrange to complete the requirements of 
the course. An 'T* which has not been removed by the middle of the 
succeeding quarter is automatically changed to an ;, F". The "S" and 
"U" symbols may be utilized for completion of degree requirements 
other than academic course work (such as student teaching, clinical 
practicum. etc.). Withdrawal without penalty (\V) is not permitted 
after the quarterly dates listed in the "Academic Calendar'* in this 

78 



Bulletin as the dates that mid -term reports are due. Exceptions to 
this policy must be approved by the Dean of the College and will be 
based only on cases of hardship. 

HONORS 

Dean's List: Students enrolled for at least ten quarter hours of 
course work who earn an honor point average of at least 3.5 will be 
placed on the Dean's List, published quarterly. Only course work taken 
at Armstrong will be used in the computation of Dean's List honors. 

Cum Laude: Those students graduating with an honor point 
average of 3.2 through 3.499 will be graduated cum laude. 

Magna Cum Laude: Those students graduating with an honor 
point average of 3.5 through 3.799 will be graduated magna cum laude. 

Summa Cum Laude: Those students graduating with an honor 
point average of 3.8 through 4.0 will be graduated summa cum laude. 

All work attempted at Armstrong and other accredited institutions 
will be considered in computing honors for graduation. 

ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect 
of a student's attendance on his grades in a course are left entirely to 
the discretion of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is announced, 
discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as for mastering all 
assigned reading; he is also responsible for turning in on time all 
assignments and tests, including recitation and unannounced quizzes. 
The best way to meet these responsibilities is to attend classes 
regularly. An instructor may drop a student from any class with a 
grade of "F" if he thinks that the excessive absence prevents that 
student from satisfactorily fulfilling his responsibilities. If such 
excessive absence is the result of prolonged illness, death in the 
family, college business, or religious holidays, the withdrawal grade 
will be either "W" or "F" depending on the student's status at the 
time he was dropped. Instructors will be responsible for informing 
each of his classes at its first meeting what constitutes excessive 
absence in that particular class. Each student is responsible for 
knowing the attendance regulation in his class and for complying 
with it. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM 

All students who are enrolled for ten quarter hours or more on the 
day schedule are required to complete six hours of physical 
education, of which P.E. 117 (Basic Health) and P.E. 103 (Elemen- 
tary Swimming) or P.E. 108 (Intermediate Swimming) are required. 
During his freshman year, a student should take P.E. 117 and 103 or 



79 



108. During their sophomore year, students may elect any three 
Physical Education activity courses with the last two numbers being 
01 to 09. 

Any student who holds a valid senior life saving certificate and/or 
a valid water safety instructor certificate and/or passes the 
Armstrong swimming test may be exempted from the required 
swimming course (P.E. 103 or 108). 

A student graduating with an Associate Degree must complete 
three credit hours of Physical Education. 

A student who has completed at least six months of military 
service is required to take only four hours in physical education, 
which he may choose from all scheduled offerings, during his 
freshman and sophomore years. 

Physical education is not required of anyone who is beyond the 
age of 25 at the time of initial matriculation, or of anyone enrolled 
primarily in evening classes. 

The department requires all students to make up excused 
absences; unexcused absences lower the final grade. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

A student who maintains or exceeds the gradepoint average 
indicated below for quarter hours attempted will be considered in 
good standing. 

When a student first falls below the GPA required for the 
appropriate accumulation of hours, he will be placed on academic 
warning. If he does not raise his GPA to a satisfactory level the next 
quarter, he will be placed on academic probation. 

Quarter Hours Attempted at Required Cumulative 

Armstrong and Elsewhere GPA

A student on academic probation who raises his cumulative 
gradepoint average during the probationary quarter to equal to or 
exceed the appropriate figure in the foregoing table will be removed 
from academic probation. One who fails to achieve the required 
cumulative average, but who does earn an average of at least 2.0 
during the probationary quarter, will be continued on probation for 
the next quarter of attendance. The College places no restrictions on 
the extracurricular activities of students who are placed on academic 
probation. Any student on academic probation should plan both his 
curricular and extracurricular activities with care, consulting with his 
advisor in so doing. 

The student on academic probation who does not achieve the 
required cumulative average or who does not earn an average of at 
least 2.0 for the quarter in which he is on probation will be 
suspended from the college for one quarter. A student who is on 
academic suspension for the first time, however, has the option of 
attending summer school without having to appeal the suspension. A 
third academic suspension is final. 

A student re-entering the college after academic suspension is 
placed on probation and must meet the requirements listed above. 

A student suspended for academic reasons may appeal by letter to 
the President, who will refer the appeal to the Committee on 
Academic Standing. Such a letter of appeal should state the nature of 
any extenuating circumstances relating to the academic deficiency; 
the letter should be received by the President no later than 9 a.m. on 
registration day. No action will be taken on appeals received later 
than 12:00 noon on the day following registration day. 

REPEATING COURSES 

Any course for which a grade of "D" or "F" has been recorded 
may be repeated with the last grade to be counted in the institutional 
grade-point average. A student who repeats any such courses should 
complete a "Notice of Course Repetition" form available in the 
Office of the Registrar. 

DROPPING COURSES 

A student desiring to drop a course after the quarter has begun 
must obtain a Drop- Add Notice in the Office of the Registrar. The 
notice must be signed by the instructor of the course being dropped 
and returned by the student to the Registrar's Office. 



81 



A student who drops a course not more than seven class days after 
the course begins will receive no grade for the course. A student who 
drops a course after the first seven class days and on or before the 
quarterly dates listed in the "Academic Calendar" in this Bulletin for 
mid-term reports will receive a "W" or a "WF" depending on his 
status in the course. A student may not drop a course without 
penalty following the quarterly dates listed in the "Academic 
Calendar" for mid-term reports. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from college must 
begin the process in the Office of Student Affairs. A formal 
withdrawal is required to insure that the student is eligible to return 
to Armstrong State College at a future date. Any refund to which a 
student is entitled will be considered on the basis of the date which 
appears on the withdrawal form. 

AUDITING 

A regular student wishing to "audit" a course without receiving 
credit must obtain the written permission of the instructor before he 
registers for the course. During the registration process the student 
should request a special "audit" course card. (Policy for some 
courses forbids "auditing.") A student may not change from audit to 
credit status or from credit to audit status after he has completed the 
process of registration for a course. A student who audits a course 
will have a "V" recorded for that course on his transcript. The 
regular schedule of fees applies to auditors. 

REGENTS EXAMINATION 

University System policy requires that all students successfully 
complete tests of writing skills and reading comprehension as a 
requirement for graduation. A student will be notified by grade 
report to take the tests in the quarter immediately following that in 
which he completes his 55th hour. In order to insure adequate 
preparation for the tests, freshmen are expected to begin the 
sequence of required English composition courses no later than in 
their second quarter of attendance. Transfer students who have 
completed more than 55 quarter hours and who have not success- 
fully completed the tests are responsible for meeting this require- 
ment at the earliest possible time. 

Students are required to schedule their taking of the Regents 
Examination either at the time of registration for the quarter in 
which the examination is to be taken or in the Counseling and 

82 



Placement Office no later than one week prior to the administration 
of the examination. Dates for the Regents Examination are printed 
in the "Academic Calendar" section of this Bulletin. 

Students who successfully complete the Regents Examination will 
be so notified on their grade reports for the quarter in which the 
examination was taken. Students who do not successfully complete 
the examination will be notified in writing concerning any remedia- 
tion required before they will be allowed to repeat the examination. 

Any student who neglects to take the Regents Examination when 
notified to do so will be prohibited from pre-registering or registering 
at the College for subsequent quarters. 

EXIT EXAMINATIONS 

Each student who receives a degree from Armstrong State College 
at the Associate or Baccalaureate degree level is required to take an 
Exit Examination in his/her major area. This Exit Examination is 
comprehensive in nature. Please see the appropriate Department 
Head for further information concerning these Exit Examinations. 
Students in the Associate in Arts degree program should seek 
information in the Office of the Registrar. 

HONOR CODE 

The Honor Code at Armstrong State College is dedicated to the 
proposition that the protection of the grading system is in the 
interest of the student community. The Student Court is an 
institutional means to assure that the student community shall have 
primary disposition of infractions of the Honor Code and that 
students accused of such infractions shall enjoy those procedural 
guarantees traditionally considered essential to a fair and impartial 
hearing, the foremost of which is the presumption of innocence until 
guilt be established beyond a reasonable doubt. 

I. Responsibilities of Students: 

All students must agree to abide by the rules of the Honor 
Code. A student shall not be accepted at Armstrong State 
College unless he signs the following statement at the time of 
his first registration: "I have read the Honor Code of 
Armstrong State College. I understand the Code and agree that 
as a student at Armstrong, I must comply with these 
requirements." This statement shall be printed on the 



83 



application for admission to the college and must be signed by 
the student. The Honor Code shall be printed in the official 
Bulletin and the Student Handbook. 

It will be the responsibility of the Student Court or its 
designated representative to conduct an orientation program at 
the beginning of each quarter for all newly entering students to 
explain fully the Honor Code and to allow full discussion of its 
requirements. 

Any student desiring assistance with any matter related to the 
Honor Code is invited to seek assistance in the Office of 
Student Affairs. 

II. Violations of the Honor Code: 

Violations of the Honor Code may be of two kinds: (a) general 
and (b) those related to the peculiarities of specific course- 
related problems and to the understanding of individual 
instructors. Any instructor whose conception of cheating 
would tend to enlarge or contract the general regulations 
defining cheating must explicitly notify the affected students 
of the qualifications to the general regulations which he wishes 
to stipulate. The following will be considered general violations 
of the Honor Code. 

1. Giving or receiving any unauthorized help on any assign- 
ment, test or paper. The meaning of "unauthorized help" 
shall be made clear by the instructor of each class. 

2. Stealing when related to cheating. 

3. Plagiarizing. 

4. Giving perjured testimony before the Student Court. 

5. Suborning, attempting to suborn, or intimidating witnesses. 

6. Failing to report a suspected violation of the Honor Code. 

III. Reporting Violations of the Honor Code: 

Anyone wishing to report a violation may come to the Office 
of Student Affairs for assistance in contacting members of the 
Student Court. 



84 



A. Self -reporting: A student who has broken the Honor Code 
should report himself to a member of the Student Court. 

B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of a 
violation of the Honor Code must report the matter. This 
may be done in one of two ways. 

1. He may tell the person thought to be guilty to report 
himself to a member of the Student Court no later than 
the end of the next school day. After this designated 
time, the person who is aware of the violation must 
inform a member of the Student Court so that the 
Student Court may contact the accused person if he has 
not already reported himself. 

2. He may report the suspected violation directly to a 
member of the Student Court without informing the 
accused. 

IV. The procedural rights of students accused of violations of the 
Honor Code: 

The essence of the procedural rights of an accused is the right 
to a fair and impartial hearing and the right to be presumed 
innocent until proven guilty. Specific rights are as follows: 

1. The accused will be notified in writing by the Student Court 
or its designated representative of the nature and details of 
the offense with which he is charged along with the names 
of his accusers and the principal witnesses to be brought 
against him. This notification shall occur no less than three 
days prior to the date of the hearing. 

2. The accused has the right to counsel of his own choosing. 
Such counsel will not participate directly in the proceedings 
except to advise his client. It is expected that such counsel 
will be drawn from the college community. 

3. The accused and the person bringing the charges shall be 
afforded an opportunity to present witnesses and docu- 
mentary or other evidence. The accused and any individual 
bringing the charges shall have the right to cross examine all 
witnesses and may, where the witnesses cannot appear 
because of illness or other cause acceptable to the Court, 
present the sworn statement of the witnesses. The Court 
shall not be bound by formal rules governing the 



85 



presentation of evidence, and it may consider any evidence 
presented which is of probative value in the case. 

4. The accused may not be made to bear witness against 
himself. The Court may not take the refusal of accused to 
testify as evidence of guilt, but this proviso does not give 
the accused immunity from a hearing or from recommenda- 
tions reached in a hearing simply because the accused does 
not testify. 

5. The accused shall have access to a complete audiotape of 
the hearing and to the record prepared by the secretary. 

6. The substantive facts of a case may be re-opened for 
consideration upon initiation of the accused acting through 
normal appeal channels. The accused shall not be put in 
double jeopardy. 

7. All witnesses will be sequestered from the hearing room 
during the course of a hearing. Witnesses may not discuss a 
pending case. 

8. By prior agreement, the accused will be allowed such 
observers of the hearing as may be commensurate with the 
space available. Otherwise, in the interests of the right of 
privacy of the accused, hearings will be private, except that 
the College may also have observers additional to the 
advisors to the Student Court. 

V. The Honor Code Commission, The Student Court Selection 
Committee, The Student Court, and Advisers to the Court 

A. Honor Code Commission 

It shall be the purpose of the Honor Code Commission to 
administer the student academic honor code. The Commis- 
sion will have the responsibility for revising and updating 
the student academic honor code as needs arise. The Honor 
Code Commission shall consist of the President, Vice- 
President, and Secretary of the Student Government 
Association and the current President and Secretary of 
Student Court together with three faculty members 
appointed by the President of the college. 

B. Student Court Selection Committee 

The Student Court Selection Committee will select 
members for the Student Court. The Student Court 
Selection Committee will consist of two faculty members 



86 



from the Honor Code Commission, one of whom is the 
chairperson of that commission, two students from the 
Honor Code Commission, one of whom is a member of the 
Student Court, two faculty members from the Conduct 
Committee, one of whom is the chairperson of that 
committee, two students from the Conduct Committee, one 
of whom is a member of the Student Court, and the Dean 
of Students. 

C. Student Court 

1. The Student Court will be selected by the Student Court 
Selection Committee and will be composed of twelve 
students. Due consideration will be given to equitable 
apportionment of court members of the basis of aca- 
demic class, race, and sex. Students on academic proba- 
tion may not serve. All appointments will be issued and 
accepted in writings Appointments will be made during 
Spring Quarter in time for newly elected members of the 
Court to assume their duties by May 1. Appointments 
will be made as needed to keep the Student Court staffed 
to do business on a reasonably prompt basis. These 
appointments may constitute permanent or temporary 
replacements as the Student Court Selection Committee 
deems necessary. 

2. The Student Court will elect a President, Vice-President, 
and a Secretary from its membership. The President will 
preside at all meetings. The Vice-President will assume 
the duties of the President if the President is absent. The 
Secretary will maintain written notes of all proceedings 
and audiotape records of all testimony, and will maintain 
exhibits of evidence which by their nature may reason- 
ably be maintained in the Court files. A quorum of the 
Court shall consist of eight members. A two-thirds 
majority secret ballot vote is required to reach a finding 
of guilty. All other questions may be decided by a simple 
majority vote. 

3. Constituency of the Student Court during the Summer 
Quarter shall include all appointed members in attend- 
ance, and others as shall be appointed to membership by 
the Student Court Selection Committee. 

4. Student Court Members shall examine their consciences 
carefully to determine whether they can in good con- 
science serve on a panel hearing a particular case, and in 



87 



the event that there is any doubt, whatsoever, such 
members shall excuse themselves from duty on the 
specific panel in question. 

D. Advisers to the Court 

1. An adviser and an associate adviser to the Student Court 
shall be appointed by the President of the College. 

2. Ordinarily the adviser will serve in that office for one 
year only and usually will be succeeded in that position 
by the associate adviser. Therefore, after the initial 
appointments, only an associate adviser will ordinarily be 
appointed each year. The succession of an associate to 
the adviser position is deemed to occur on the last day of 
Spring Quarter. If, for any reason, the adviser is unable 
to complete his term, the associate adviser shall succeed 
to the office of adviser and another associate adviser shall 
be appointed by the above procedures. If, during the 
Summer Quarter, neither adviser is on campus, a tempo- 
rary adviser will be appointed. 

3. Duties of the adviser and the associate adviser: It shall be 
the duty of the adviser to consult with the Court and to 
offer advice to the President and members of the Court 
on substantive and procedural questions. The adviser, or 
the associate adviser in the event the adviser is unable to 
attend, shall be present at all meetings and hearings of 
the Court. The adviser may not vote nor may he 
participate directly in the conduct of hearings before the 
Court except through the chairman, or acting chairman, 
of the Court. The adviser should be governed at all times 
by the principle that a hearing before the Student Court 
is primarily a matter of student responsibility. 

VI. Procedures and Penalties Adopted by the Student Court: 

The Student Court shall formulate its own bylaws governing 
internal organization and procedure. Such bylaws must be 
consistent with the Honor Code. 

A. Hearings shall be called by the Court President to be held on 
a date not less than three (3) nor more than ten (10) class 
days after notice to the accused as provided in Section IV-2. 
Exceptions to these time requirements may be granted. 



88 



B. Upon reaching a finding of guilty, the Court shall make a 
recommendation to the Dean of the College as to the 
administrative action it deems appropriate within the 
following limitations: 

1. A minimum penalty shall be loss of assignment or test 
credit for the assignment or test for violations involving 
cheating as specified in Section II, subsections 1, 2 and 3. 
Additional penalties such as reprimands, suspension, or 
others may be recommended for any aspects of Section 
II. 

2. Maximum penalty for a first offense of any type shall be 
suspension for a full calendar year. 

3. Maximum penalty for a second offense may be suspen- 
sion for three years. 

C. Immediately following a hearing, the accused will be 
informed of the Court's finding, and its recommendation to 
the Dean of the College. If the finding is guilty, the accused 
will be informed that the Court may re-open the case with 
the consent of the accused for good cause, within a three 
week period. 

D. The Dean of the College will inform all involved persons in 
writing of the action he has taken in view of Court 
recommendations. The Court Secretary will post public 
notice of the Dean's action by case number without 
identifying the accused. 

VII. Appeals of Findings and Penalties: 

Should a student have cause to question the findings of the 
Court or the action of the Dean of the College or both, he has 
the right to appeal. The channels of appeal are as follows: 

A. Court findings and/or the administrative action of the Dean 
of the College may be appealed within five days by writing 
the President of the College. Further appeal procedures will 
conform to the appeal procedures of the College and of the 
Policies of the Board of Regents, University System of 
Georgia (a copy of these policies is available in the Library; 
see chapter on Students, secton on appeals, page 165, 1969 
edition). 



89 



VIII. Supervision of the Student Court: 

As an institutional means of responding to reported infractions 
of the Honor Code, the Student Court is ultimately responsible 
to the President of the College. 

Supervision of the Student Court will be accomplished 
ordinarily through the Dean of Student Affairs and the 
Advisors. 

A. Dean of Student Affairs 

In accordance with Article VI, Section F, of the College 
Statutes, the Dean of Student Affairs will provide general 
supervision of the Student Court and will provide other 
guidance or services as directed by the President of the 
College. 

XI. Revision of the Honor Code will require confirmation by 
majority vote of those faculty and student body members 
voting.

185 quarter hours, exclusive of the required physical education 
courses, is required for graduation. 

Each student in one of these major programs must complete the 
96-hour core curriculum requirement as listed above. 

The student will not be allowed to take senior division courses in 
his major field unless he has a minimum grade of "C" in all 
prerequisite courses in that field. No major program in a department 
will require more than 60 quarter hours at all levels in the major 
field; however, the department may recommend up to 70 quarter 
hours. 

For its major program, a department will require from 15 to 30 
quarter hours of specific courses or approved elective courses in 
related fields and may require language courses reaching the degree 
of proficiency specified by the department. Total requirements in 
the major and related fields may not exceed 85 quarter hours. 

Each B.A. or B.S. degree program will include a minimum of 15 
quarter hours of free electives. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ASSOCIATE DEGREES

Baccalaureate Core; 5) three credit hours of Physical Education. The 

97 



student in an associate degree program is required to complete 
successfully the Regents Examination and to take an Exit 
Examination in his/her area of concentration. 

TEACHER EDUCATION 

All teacher education programs are approved by the National 
Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and 
by the Georgia State Department of Education. Upon verification by 
the College that the student has completed successfully an approved 
program, the student applies to the State Department of Education 
for the appropriate certificate. Armstrong State College offers the 
following approved Teacher Education programs: 

Approved Programs 

Elementary Education (Grades 1-8) 

Speech Correction 

Secondary Programs (Grades 7-12)

Social Studies (History) 

Social Studies (Political Science) 

Social Studies (Behavioral Sciences) 
All Levels (Grades 1-12) 

Music 

Physical Education 

The college also offers an Associate Library Media Specialist 
program which may constitute an area of concentration for 
elementary teachers and an endorsement on the certificate for 
secondary teachers. The program is also intended to create an 
interest in librarianship. The courses are Library Science 310, 320, 
410, and 420 (20 quarter hours credit). 

A student must complete the college approved program for 
certification within four years following his/her admission to the 
Teacher Education Program. In the event that the student does not 
complete his program in four years, he/she must meet the 
requirements of the program in effect at that time. 



98 



All students completing teacher education programs are required 
to take both the Common Examinations and the appropriate 
Teaching Area Examination of the National Teacher Examinations. 
Students must submit the scores from these examinations or 
evidence that the examinations have been completed to the 
Department of Education before the college can verify that an 
approved program has been completed. Additional information 
about the National Teacher Examinations can be secured from the 
Office of the Dean of Student Affairs. 

Academic Advisement 

A student who desires to become an elementary or secondary 
school teacher should apply during the first quarter of residence to 
the Department of Education for academic advisement. He should 
follow without deviation the approved program. Upon admission to 
teacher education, students will be assigned advisors as follows: 

1. Elementary education and speech correction majors are assigned 
an advisor in the Department of Education who will assist the 
student in planning the total program of studies. 

2. Students pursuing secondary or all level programs will be 
assigned an advisor in the Department of Education to assist 
them concerning the professional sequence courses and 
certification requirements. In addition, students will have an 
advisor in the teaching field major to approve the courses in the 
teaching field. Assignment of the teaching field advisor will be 
made by the head of the academic department offering the 
major. Each student must have his secondary teaching program 
approved in advanced by both advisors. Special forms for this 
purpose are to be filed with each advisor and a copy given to 
the student. 

Admission to Teacher Education 

All students apply for admission to teacher education at 
Armstrong State College. This application will normally be filed 
during the third quarter of the sophomore year or, for transfer 
students, in the first quarter of the junior year. Application forms 
may be secured from the office of the Head of the Department of 
Education. The following criteria are used in admitting applicants to 
teacher education: 



99 



1. Completion of at least 60 quarter hours of college credit with a 
2.50 GPA and completion of Education 203 and English 121, 
122, and 221 or their equivalents with a "C" or better. 

2. Satisfactory completion of the Regents Examination. 

3. Competence in oral and written expression. 

4. Satisfactory physical and emotional health. 

5. Indication of desirable attitude, character, and teaching 
potential. 

September Practicum 

The purpose of the September Practicum is to provide an 
opportunity for future teachers (1) to learn what teachers do at the 
beginning of a new school term, (2) to participate in experiences that 
will assist the prospective teacher with future decisions concerning 
teaching as a career, and (3) to become acquainted with the 
organization and curriculum of a particular school. 

The September Practicum occurs during the first two weeks of the 
public school term (usually in late August and early September) and 
should be scheduled during the student's junior or senior year. No 
credit is given for the September Practicum, but it is a requirement in 
all of the teaching fields in the Armstrong State College Teacher 
Education Program. 

Application for the September Practicum should be made during 
the first week of the Spring Quarter for a September Practicum in 
the forthcoming September. The student should contact the Director 
of Professional Laboratory Experiences in the Department of

prerequisite. To be eligible for a B.S. degree in biology, the student 
must have an average of at least "C" for all upper division courses 
(those numbered 300 or above) in biology. 

Beginning students who have successfully completed strong 
courses in biology in high school are advised to take the examina- 
tions for advanced placement which are offered with the College 
Entrance Examinations. Arrangements to take these tests may be 
made through the office of the Dean of Student Affairs.

DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

Professor Richards, Acting Head; Professors Bhatia, Davis, Eason, 
Hall; Associate Professors, LaBurtis, Morgan and Squires; Assistant 
Professors Alban, Alexander, Chambless, DeCastro, Jenkowski, 
Jensen and Landrum. 

The department offers a two-year Secretarial Studies degree 
program and two four-year degree programs: the Bachelor of Arts 
degree with a major in economics and the Bachelor of Business 
Administration degree with concentrations in accounting, business 
education, economics, finance, information systems, management 
and management-marketing. 

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in economics is 
appropriate for the student who wishes a broad liberal arts program 
with emphasis on understanding the concepts underlying the working 
of economic systems. The program provides a good preparation for 
anyone who plans to work in industry, especially banking, insurance, 
or investments. It also provides excellent preparation for positions in 
government, or further professional education in business, eco- 
nomics, education, or law. This program requires proficiency in a 
foreign language through the 201 level or completion of the calculus 
sequence. 

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentra- 
tion in business education is designed to prepare teachers of high 
school business subjects, such as bookkeeping and business manage- 
ment, and/or secretarial skills, such as typing, shorthand, office 
machines, and office procedures. 

The programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Business 
Administration with a concentration in accounting, economics, 
finance, information systems, management, or management- 
marketing require, in addition to the general college core require- 
ments, a common business core of eleven courses, and a major 
concentration of six courses in the respective major field. These 
programs are most appropriate for students who wish a broad general 
education in business and economics and, in addition, a significant 
amount of specialized background in a single area to enhance their 
prospects for immediate employment in industry or government. 

Students in all programs should be familiar with general degree 
requirements as listed in the "Degree Programs" section of this 
bulletin, and should satisfy the college core requirements during the 
Freshman and Sophomore years. No student will be allowed to take 
upper division courses in his major unless he has a minimum grade of 



118 



"C" in all prerequisite courses. An average of at least 2.0 in his major 
concentration courses is a requirement for graduation, and college 
academic regulations, stated elsewhere in this bulletin, impose certain 
additional degree requirements. 

The Department of Business Administration considers the core 
curriculum required sequences in English, Mathematics, Economics 
and Accounting as basic to the structure of its degree programs. 
Therefore, no student will be permitted to enroll in a 300 or 400 
level Business Administration or Economics course without the 
expressed permission of the Head of the Department of Business 
Administration unless he has successfully completed those required 
sequences appropriate to his degree program.

DEPARTMENT OF DENTAL HYGIENE 

Assistant Professor James M. Bell, Head; Instructors Coursey, 
Tanenbaum, and Thomson; Teaching Associate Olsen. 

Associate in Science in Dental Hygiene 

The curriculum in dental hygiene at Armstrong State College was 
approved by the Council on Dental Education in May, 1973. 

The purpose of the program is to meet the ever-increasing need for 
individuals educated in this rapidly growing and important health 
profession. Dental hygienists are in demand to provide dental health 
services in private dental offices, civil service positions, school 
programs, and various public health fields. They practice under the 
supervision of a dentist and must pass a state board examination for 
licensure. 

Admission to this two-year program is limited to 30 in each class. 
Students enroll in the fall of each year. Application for admission 
should be completed by April 15th for the fall quarter, including a 
transcript of course work up to that date. A complete transcript 
must be submitted as soon as possible thereafter. 

A passing grade in all natural science courses must be maintained 
for the student to be allowed to continue in the Dental Hygiene 
courses during the freshman year. The student must earn a "C" or 
better in each Dental Hygiene course before he or she will be allowed 
to register for subsequent Dental Hygiene courses; therefore, the 
grade of "C" or better in the previous course(s) is prerequisite for 
each Dental Hygiene course for which the student registers after the 
first quarter of the freshman year. An overall GPA of 2.0 is required 
for graduation from the program.

All students are reminded that any who receive degrees from the

ciency in U.S. and Georgia History and Constitutions. This 



169 



requirement may be met by the successful completion of Political 
Science 113 and History 251 or 252 or may be exempted by 
examination with credit awarded. See "Academic Regulations" 
section. 

A major in Political Science or History is most useful to those who 
plan to enter teaching, library or archival work, publishing, journal- 
ism, or such professional fields as international business, law or 
theology. Either major is also a desirable foundation for opportu- 
nities in or related to government (e.g., civil and foreign service, 
A.I.D., U.S.I.A., ACTION, teaching abroad, etc.). Beyond these 
fields there is an enormous variety of organizations (local, national, 
and international) whose philanthropic, sectarian, or economic 
interests require people with the skills and sensitivity developed by a 
major in History or Political Science. 

The Major in History 

Students majoring in History should satisfy the college core 
requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree during the Freshman 
and Sophomore years. To complete the major requires, beyond 
Western Civilization (History 114-115) and U.S. History (History 
251-252), forty quarter hours from courses numbered 300 or above 
(with grades of "C" or better) including History 300. Students 
should register for History 300 in the Sophomore or early in the 
Junior year, or in the first possible quarter after making the decision 
to major in History. The major program must also include (a) 25 
quarter hours as approved by faculty advisor in related fields such as: 
anthropology, history of art and music, economics, literaure, 
political science, philosophy, psychology, sociology, or statistics; and 
(b) a fifteen quarter hour foreign language sequence, or proficiency 
in a language through the 103 level. Students who contemplate 
graduate work in history, however, are strongly advised to continue 
their linguistic study beyond this elementary level. The history 
faculty will consider substitutions only when compelling reasons 
argue against fulfilling the language requirement and only when the 
proposed substitute offers an additional research skill or a study in 
depth of a foreign culture. In selecting course work, a student may 
emphasize the history of one particular area or cultural tradition, but 
may not present a major exclusively in any one of these areas.

Admission Requirements 

For admission requirements for the Associate in Science Degree 
Program in Nursing or the Bachelor of Science in Nursing, refer to 
the section on "Admissions" in this bulletin. 

Associate in Science in Nursing 

The Associate in Science Degree Program in Nursing provides the 
student with the opportunity to obtain a general education and to 
study nursing at the college level. Graduates are eligible to take the 
state examination for licensure to practice as registered nurses. 

Student nurses participate in nursing laboratory experiences at 
Memorial Medical Center, Candler General Hospital Complex, St. 
Joseph's Hospital, Georgia Regional Hospital at Savannah, and other 
community agencies. Students are assigned to the clinical area and 
are responsible for providing their own transportation. 

Students are admitted to the nursing sequence courses each year in 
the fall. They may begin the general academic courses required in the 
program in any quarter. Six quarters in the nursing program are 
required. All natural science courses must be taken in sequence. 

A passing grade in all natural science courses must be maintained 
each quarter for the student to be allowed to continue in the nursing 
program. The student must earn a "C" (2.0) or better in each nursing 
course before he or she will be allowed to register for the subsequent 

207 



nursing course; therefore, a grade of "C" (2.0) or better in the 
previous course is a prerequisite for all nursing courses. The student 
may repeat a nursing course only once in order to earn the grade that 
is prerequisite for a subsequent course. A grade of "C" (2.0) or 
better must be earned in Nursing 203. An overall GPA of 2.0 is 
required for graduation from the program.
